In an interview with Current TV’s liberal news host Keith Olbermann on Wednesday night, “Occupy Tucson” organizer Craig Barber gave viewers a few tips on how they can start new chapters of the protest movement in their own towns and cities.
Namely, he hit on a political meme that runs like a constant thread through U.S. history: all politics is local.
“Don’t be discouraged by the fact that you’re a small city,” he said. “You have local issues that you can raise up in addition to the national issues. That’s one of the reasons we’re doing what we’re doing, to highlight local issues that directly affect our community.”
